Chad Henne - QBPosted 8/21/17 4:01pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars QBs Blake Bortles and Chad Henne received an equal amount of snaps with the first-team offense during practice Monday, Aug. 21. Head coach Doug Marrone is not ready to name a starter for the third preseason game and wants to see them practice Tuesday, Aug. 22, before making a decision.
Huddle Up: Bortles has struggled during training camp and preseason, which has given Henne a chance to win the starting job. The Jaguars have a good set of receivers on the roster, but owners should stay away from the team's quarterback situation in fantasy leagues.
T.J. Yeldon - RBPosted 8/21/17 4:26pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars RB T.J. Yeldon (hamstring) has been ruled out for the preseason game against the Carolina Panthers Thursday, Aug. 24, and is considered unlikely to play in the final preseason game.
Huddle Up: Yeldon has been competing for the No. 2 running back job since the start of training camp, so missing the last two games may hurt his chances. He will receive limited touches this season if he makes the team and should be avoided.
Leonard Fournette - RBPosted 8/21/17 4:09pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (foot) has been ruled out for the preseason game against the Carolina Panthers Thursday, Aug. 24, and is considered unlikely to play in the final preseason game.
Huddle Up: Fournette likely will be ready to play when the regular season begins and will receive most of the carries this season. He has a chance to receive a lot of touches because of the team's quarterback situation, which makes him a solid No. 2 running back in standard leagues.
Marqise Lee - WRPosted 8/21/17 4:44pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars WR Marqise Lee (ankle) has been ruled out for the preseason game against the Carolina Panthers Thursday, Aug. 24, and is considered unlikely to play in the final preseason game.
Huddle Up: Lee will have two weeks to recover from his ankle injury and should have a good chance to play in Week 1. He is coming off a career season in 2016 when he recorded 851 yards and three touchdowns. He probably will be the No. 2 or No. 3 receiver for the Jaguars this season but should only be a late-round flier in deeper leagues.
T.J. Yeldon - RBPosted 8/20/17 3:50pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars RBs Leonard Fournette (foot) and T.J. Yeldon (hamstring) did not participate in practice Sunday, Aug. 20.
Huddle Up: Fournette should be ready for the start of the regular season unless he suffers a setback. He will receive most of the carries during his rookie season and can be considered a No. 2 running back in fantasy leagues. Yeldon has a chance to be the primary backup running back for the Jaguars but can be avoided in fantasy leagues.
Leonard Fournette - RBPosted 8/19/17 10:32am ET
Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (foot) told reporters Saturday, Aug. 19, he expects to be ready for Week 1 but acknowledged his exact return date is up to the coaches.
Huddle Up: This is a mildly curious report since Fournette was being rested this week to calm down a 'minor' foot injury, so owners have a right to be skeptical. Until more is known, however, owners should assume Fournette will be a high-volume RB2 who is a worthy selection in the second round of most fantasy drafts. He has the talent to overcome his less-than-ideal situation, but he should be expected to be inconsistent until the quarterback and offensive play in Jacksonville improves.
T.J. Yeldon - RBPosted 8/19/17 1:02pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars RB T.J. Yeldon (hamstring) is not participating in practice Saturday, Aug. 19.
Huddle Up: Yeldon suffered the injury during the second preseason game and his return is uncertain. Yeldon is competing for the No. 2 running back job but can be avoided in all fantasy leagues.
Allen Robinson - WRPosted 8/17/17 8:45pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars WR Allen Robinson caught five passes for 40 yards in the preseason game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Thursday, Aug. 17.
Huddle Up: Robinson had a disappointing 2016 season but was still able to post 883 yards and six touchdowns. He will continue to be the Jaguars' No. 1 receiver and should see a solid amount of targets. Robinson probably can be considered a No. 2 receiver in most fantasy leagues.
Chad Henne - QBPosted 8/17/17 8:50pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Doug Marrone said QB Blake Bortles has to earn the starting quarterback job and indicated QB Chad Henne has a chance to take the job. Marrone said he is looking for the best person to lead the offense.
Huddle Up: Bortles struggled last season and is having problems during the preseason, so he may have to play well in the third preseason if he wants to start Week 1. Owners can monitor the situation over the next few weeks, but neither Bortles nor Henne is a great option in fantasy leagues.
T.J. Yeldon - RBPosted 8/17/17 11:42pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars RB T.J. Yeldon (hamstring) suffered a left hamstring strain in the first quarter and did not return against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Thursday, Aug. 17. Yeldon finished with two carries for two yards.
Huddle Up: While the severity of the injury was not immediately known it's hard to imagine the team will push Yeldon with three-plus weeks before the opener, which hopefully will be plenty of time for him to heal. Perhaps it will end the charade that anyone other than Leonard Fournette will start in Week 1. Barring unexpectedly bad news this shouldn't affect Yeldon's fantasy profile as a late-round Fournette handcuff or RB5 stash.
Blake Bortles - QBPosted 8/16/17 9:57pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles has the highest passer rating (111) in the NFL over the last two seasons during garbage time (defined as the last five minutes of the fourth quarter and the losing team is down nine or more points), having completed 78-of-118 passes for 964 yards, with 12 touchdowns versus only four interceptions. Additionally, since 2015, 20.7 percent of Bortles' touchdown passes have come in these instances, which is nearly four times the average for the rest of the league.
Huddle Up: Experienced fantasy owners are probably already aware of Bortles' elite ability to pad his stats in meaningless situations, but it's even more glaring when you look at the actual numbers. Still, it shouldn't really tempt owners to draft the fourth-year pro as their starter, as Bortles was a huge letdown last season when many expected him to make a giant leap. He'll be entering a make-or-break campaign and hasn't really exhibited any encouraging signs this summer.
Blake Bortles - QBPosted 8/15/17 11:51pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles indicated his arm was 'fine' when speaking to reporters Tuesday, Aug. 15. This came after head coach Doug Marrone said he rested Bortles over the weekend because the quarterback looked like he had a tired arm.
Huddle Up: Expectations are down dramatically for Bortles this year, and there's a presumption the team will lean on its ground game, diminishing Bortles' role in the process. He has some weapons, but Bortles currently rates as a shaky fantasy backup.
Marqise Lee - WRPosted 8/14/17 7:19am ET
Updating previous reports, Jacksonville Jaguars WR Marqise Lee (ankle) is out with a high ankle sprain. He will attempt to return before Week 1.
Huddle Up: These are usually four-to-six-week injuries, and Week 1 should be considered doubtful. Lee falls back to a WR5 flyer. Rashad Greene could see more time in the slot, but he's a fringe WR5.
Leonard Fournette - RBPosted 8/14/17 12:12pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (foot) will not play Thursday, Aug. 17, against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers because of his foot injury, according to head coach Doug Marrone.
Huddle Up: The Jaguars will take it easy with their highly touted rookie so as to not aggravate the injury. Fournette had foot issues in college, too, so they'll be especially careful. As long as Fournette doesn't have any setbacks, he remains a low-end RB1 to high-end RB2 consideration.
Allen Hurns - WRPosted 8/14/17 4:59pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars WR Allen Hurns (undisclosed) participated in practice Monday, Aug. 14, and appeared to be a full participant.
Huddle Up: Hurns missed a few practices because of his injury but should be ready to go moving forward. He is coming off a disappointing performance last season but should continue to be a top-three receiver for the Jaguars in 2017. He can be considered a late-round option in leagues as a No. 5 fantasy receiver.
Leonard Fournette - RBPosted 8/13/17 11:59am ET
Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (foot) sat out of practice due to a foot injury Sunday, Aug. 13. Head coach Doug Marrone was noncommittal when asked if the injury would keep Fournette out of the team's second preseason game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Thursday, Aug. 17. 'It?s been something that has been growing. ... The other day, it was sore so we said, ?Hey, let?s not take any chances. ? We?re going to be really cautious with that. If it puts anything in jeopardy for a longer deal, then I probably won?t (play him Thursday),' Marrone said.
Huddle Up: Fournette is a solid bet to carry the ball 300-plus times in 2017, so the Jaguars will probably opt to sit him against Tampa Bay. For now, he remains a solid pick in the middle of the second round in fantasy drafts. Expect T.J. Yeldon and Chris Ivory to see the bulk of the work in the first half versus the Buccaneers.
Allen Hurns - WRPosted 8/12/17 11:10am ET
Jacksonville Jaguars WR Allen Hurns (undisclosed) did not participate in practice Saturday, Aug. 12.
Huddle Up: Hurns suffered the injury earlier this week and there is no timetable for his return. He is coming off a disappointing 2016 season but is in line for a solid role in the passing game this season. He could be a No. 5 fantasy receiver in some leagues if he recovers from his injury.
Leonard Fournette - RBPosted 8/11/17 9:11pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette said the NFL was 'a lot slower' than he expected following his preseason debut Thursday, Aug. 10, against the New England Patriots. 'I think, to me, it was really easy,' Fournette said.
Huddle Up: The preseason isn't the regular season, but Fournette is built to carry a big load, and Jacksonville is likely to give him plenty of touches after spending the No. 4 pick on him. At the very least, he should be a volume-based RB2.
Leonard Fournette - RBPosted 8/10/17 6:37pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette rushed nine times for 31 yards and a touchdown in his preseason debut Thursday, August 10, against the New England Patriots.
Huddle Up: Veteran Chris Ivory was the first running back in the ballgame for the Jaguars, but this backfield is still expected to be fueled by Fournette. The No. 4 overall draft pick in this year's draft is worth tailing as an RB2 option, and considering how majorly talented he is, it wouldn't a total shock if his ceiling reached even higher than that in his rookie campaign. Fournette could very well end up being the biggest contributor in Jacksonville's offense this year.
Blake Bortles - QBPosted 8/10/17 6:55pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles connected on 3-of-5 passes for 16 yards in the team's preseason opener Thursday, August 10, opposite the New England Patriots.
Huddle Up: A very uneventful beginning to the preseason for Bortles, though that is expected of just about all starters in the first preseason contest. Owners that are interested in giving the former No. 3 overall draft pick another shot this season after his disastrous showing a year ago will have to keep waiting to see what progress -- if any -- Bortles has made since a terrible 2016 campaign.
Allen Hurns - WRPosted 8/8/17 7:06pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars WR Allen Hurns (undisclosed) did not participate in practice Tuesday, Aug. 8.
Huddle Up: Hurns suffered the injury earlier this week, so owners should keep an eye on the situation. He had a disappointing 2016 season when he posted only 477 yards and three touchdowns but should still be a top-three receiver this season for the Jaguars. Owners could consider Hurns as a No. 5 receiver in fantasy leagues.
Allen Hurns - WRPosted 8/7/17 9:39am ET
Jacksonville Jaguars WR Allen Hurns (undisclosed) left practice Monday, Aug. 7, with a lower-body injury. Hurns got tangled up with a defender and remained down for several minutes before limping to the locker room.
Huddle Up: Hurns struggled with injuries in a down year last year. He still has quite a bit of luster as a back-end receiver in fantasy.
Dede Westbrook - WRPosted 8/6/17 6:39pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars WR Dede Westbrook had a long touchdown reception in practice Sunday, Aug. 6, and he 'continues to flash' during training camp, according to John Oehser of Jaguars.com.
Huddle Up: Westbrook has explosive speed, but the Jaguars aren't exactly thin at receiver. It could take him some time to carve out a steady role, making him more of a stash candidate in keeper formats for now.
Chris Ivory - RBPosted 8/4/17 12:45pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette, along with veterans T.J. Yeldon and Chris Ivory, were all listed as starters on the team's first unofficial depth chart Friday, Aug. 4.
Huddle Up: It's a time-honored tradition in the NFL to make rookies 'work for it,' but Fournette is pretty much a lock to start Week 1 barring injury and handle 20 touches on a fairly regular basis. Based on talent and projected workload alone, the No. 4 overall pick has a high floor and should be a solid investment for owners at the middle or end of the second round.
Blake Bortles - QBPosted 7/29/17 8:21pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles threw five interceptions during team drills Saturday, July 29, and head coach Doug Marrone said they would take a look at the plays.
Huddle Up: Bortles has been the fantasy king of garbage time the last couple of seasons, padding his stats late in games with Jacksonville trailing. He has also been a turnover machine and should be viewed as a QB2 this season.
Leonard Fournette - RBPosted 7/27/17 11:55pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette impressed as a receiver out of the backfield during both individual and team drills Thursday, July 27, according to ESPN's Michael DiRocco.
Huddle Up: If you watched an LSU game last season you know what Fournette can do as a runner, but his work thus far in OTAs and training camp suggests he could be a force catching the ball out of the backfield as well. He's a legitimate high-end RB2 right now, and the needle looks to be pointing up for his 2017 potential.
T.J. Yeldon - RBPosted 7/26/17 11:14am ET
Jacksonville Jaguars RB T.J. Yeldon (undisclosed) will be able to participate in practice Thursday, July 27, according to head coach Doug Marrone.
Huddle Up: Yeldon did take part in the offseason workouts because of the injury but appears to be ready for training camp. He will be competing for the backup running back job during camp but probably can be avoided in most fantasy leagues since he will see limited touches if he wins the job.
Allen Robinson - WRPosted 7/25/17 4:17pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars WR Allen Robinson's agent has been talking to the Jaguars about a possible new deal.
Huddle Up: Robinson is easily Jacksonville's best wide receiver, but he's coming off somewhat of a disappointing season. When Bortles is accurate and Robinson is on, he's one of the best deep threats in the league. Standard leagues suit him best, whether it's as a low-end WR1 or high-end WR2.
Allen Hurns - WRPosted 7/16/17 6:53pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars WR Allen Hurns is one of Jacksonville's most consistent receivers, according to John Oehser of Jaguars.com, and Oehser believes Hurns will be a 'big factor' in the passing game this season.
Huddle Up: Hurns was one of the biggest busts in fantasy circles last season, but he had 10 touchdowns just a couple of years ago. He should still be the No. 2 or No. 3 option in the passing game, and Hurns is worth taking a chance on as a WR5.
Allen Robinson - WRPosted 7/13/17 2:07pm ET
Jacksonville Jaguars WR Allen Robinson caught just four of his ten targets inside the 10 yard line last season. Fortunately, all four of those catches were touchdowns.
Huddle Up: Robinson is the Jaguars' best threat close to the end zone. He was tied for fourth in the NFL in targets inside the 10 yard line; he simply didn't capitalize on the opportunities. Plus, he has somewhat of an errant quarterback in Blake Bortles. Despite a disappointing 2016 campaign, Robinson remains a solid low-end WR1 to high-end WR2 consideration, although he's a more sensible selection in standard formats.
